Discovered in the foothills of Ellicott City, MD, "pre-Tulip" 1960's Teisco ET-200 is in beautiful condition. Since arriving at RSG, this single-owner guitar has undergone a thorough cleaning and restoration, and now plays brilliantly. It's been set up with low action, and the original frets have been re-seated and leveled. The plastic nut has been replaced with polished bone, for improved sustain and tonal control. All of the electronics have been cleaned and tested. This guitar also sports a NOS Teisco ET series tremolo arm, and the bridge assembly has been lightly modified to gently hold the arm in place. This modification is not permanent and doesn't damage the guitar in any way. Truly a collector's grade Teisco from a rare era, you'll be hard-pressed to find a nicer one out there.
